The majority of this story is about the various friends and allies of Oliver Queen reminiscing about their deceased friend. Arsenal (Roy Harper) thinks about his training as Speedy, Black Canary thinks about their love affair, Green Arrow II (Conner Hawke) thinks about his attempts to do the mantle proud. Each recalls how much they miss Oliver, whether they met him or not. Finally, a man walking down the street is attacked by a couple of hoods. That man is saved by a scruffy looking man who looks an awful lot like the deceased Oliver Queen.
